Makes 24 crab cakes

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 to 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
11/2 cups panko (Japanese flaked bread crumbs)
1 tablespoon chives, minced
1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over to remove shells
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground white pepper, to taste
White cake glitter, for decoration (Wilton brand is recommended)

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, egg yolk, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/4 cup panko and chives. Stir in crabmeat and add salt and pepper, mixing gently but thoroughly.
2. Cover crab mixture with plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
